Positive Outlook

I have been working at Baxter full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Growth, desire by the upper management to lead the division toward a premier Biotech company. Tenure is good and also a new wave of new hires are brought on to help create a healthy culture for positive changes.

Cons

Multiple sites has historically created too many possible "silos" and this needs to be addressed methodically.

Advice to Management

Be bold and more aggressive in order to bring your vision into reality.

    I worked at Baxter full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Consistently profitable company that serves patients and health care professionals with a variety of medical devices, services, and drugs. Compensation was at market. Expressed company values are vanilla.

    Cons

    Internal struggle between the BAX "lifers" who are just trying to ride it out until they hit their 85 points in the old defined benefit pension program vs. new talent brought in from other companies who want to change the culture and move at a faster pace. Lifers dislike newbies and a passive/aggressive counter-culture hinders faster evolution.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "dead wood", esp. from the top down. One of the GMs is psycho and needs to leave. Work-Life balance should be the goal, but unlikely with the pending split of "old" BAX vs. Newco (BioScience). Make internal change program ("Power Up") more than just a program du jour - make it stick.
